For military families, life can be especially challenging when a loved one is serving our country overseas. Trying to keep everything running smoothly can seem overwhelming: working, taking care of the children, running errands, maintaining the household. But people want to lend a helping hand and make life a little easier during this difficult time.
Although caring for the lawn may seem like a minor detail, it can be a major hassle when a loved one is away from home.
Atlantic Lighting & Irrigation is proud to participate in Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Troops program.
The program provides free lawn maintenance to military families in which the major breadwinner is serving overseas. To date, the program has helped 8,000 military families through a national network of 2,200 volunteers. The program has received national attention and has even been featured on NBC Nightly News and the NBC Weekend Today Show. Atlantic Lighting & Irrigation is aerating and over seeding the lawns of our deployed troops to help their families keep up with the lawn maintenance during their absence.
“At Atlantic Lighting & Irrigation, we support our troops,” says Dianne Flury, president, Atlantic Lighting & Irrigation. “That’s why we’re involved with Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Troops. While our men and women are overseas protecting us, we help by aerating and over seeding their lawns. We are proud to participate in the program. It’s a great opportunity to help others and give back to the community.”
Military families with a loved one who is deployed are welcome to participate in Project EverGreen’s GreenCare for Troops program., all you need to do is submit a form.
